and Friends :
One day an elephant wandered into a forest in search of friends.
He saw a monkey on a tree.
“Will you be my friend?” asked the elephant.
Replied the monkey, “You are too big. You can not swing from trees like me.”
Next, the elephant met a rabbit. He asked him to be his friends.
But the rabbit said, “You are too big to play in my burrow!”
Then the elephant met a frog.
“Will you be my friend? He asked.
“How can I?” asked the frog.
“You are too big to leap about like me.”
The elephant was upset. He met a fox next.
“Will you be my friend?” he asked the fox.
The fox said, “Sorry, sir, you are too big.”
The next day, the elephant saw all the animals in the forest running for their
The elephant asked them what the matter was.
The bear replied, “There is a tiger in the forest. He’s trying to gobble us all
The animals all ran away to hide.
The elephant wondered what he could do to solve everyone in the forest.
Meanwhile, the tiger kept eating up whoever he could find.
The elephant walked up to the tiger and said, “Please, Mr. Tiger, do not eat up
these poor animals.”
“Mind your own business!” growled the tiger.
The elephant has a no choice but to give the tiger a hefty kick.
The frightened tiger ran for his life.

The flavor was not much to the taste of the guest and presently he broke out

So when he returned to town he took the Country Mouse with him and showed him
into a larder containing flour and oatmeal and figs and honey and dates.
The Country Mouse had never seen anything like it and sat down to enjoy the
luxuries his friend provided. But before they had well begun, the door of the
larder opened and some one came in. The two Mice scampered off and hid
themselves in a narrow and exceedingly uncomfortable hole. Presently, when all

lion and A mouse
Once upon a time there lived a lion in a forest. One day
after a heavy meal. It was sleeping under a tree. After a while, there came a
mouse and it started to play on the lion. Suddenly the lion got up with anger
and looked for those who disturbed its nice sleep. Then it saw a small mouse
standing trembling with fear. The lion jumped on it and started to kill it. The
mouse requested the lion to forgive it. The lion felt pity and left it. The
mouse ran away.
On another day, the lion was caught in a net by a hunter. The mouse came there
and cut the net. Thus it escaped. There after, the mouse and the lion became
friends. They lived happily in the forest afterwards.
Moral : A friend in need is a friend indeed
